…or, unschooling reading and writing with a boy-boy
Austen and I were typing dorky notes to each other in Word. I typed a sentence and he read–then he changed the sentence and I read it. For example, I wrote, “Austen is not a gas bag.” And he changed it to (what else?), “Mom is a gas bag.” And on it went until we wrote this story. Austen’s debut in literature, world take note.
A SAD STORY
by austen and Mom
One day, a boy did a bad thing. He made a big fart. It blew his head off.
His head was not big. His head was not small. His head was gone.
He was sad.
Actually, he was dead.
All because of a big fart.
